Tasting Notes

This relatively austere but pleasant second wine achieved 13.3% natural alcohol. It is attractive, medium-bodied, and ideal for drinking over the next 7-8 years.

Score: 89Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (158), April 2005

Score: 87/89Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (149), October 2003

Tasted blind at Farr's 2002 Bordeaux tasting. A much more lifted, decadent nose (for a 2002) with blackcurrant, raspberry leaf, warm bricks and earth. The palate is ripe and fleshy, sweet and flattering with raspberry, strawberry and loganberry. Very fine tannins towards the finish. Very polished but just lacks a little personality. Tasted October 2009.
